yuletide recs round 4, 5? something like that.  
When it's late, my subject lines get ever more pointless.

Just Between Us -- AbFab. Very funny, with the shape, feel, and texture of canon.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective Sex Poodles -- BtVS. Adorable, sweet, makes-me-happy Xander/Anya. I feel like I've seen this title before--like, quite a while ago--but I don't remember reading the story. Also, I could simply be on crack.

Artificial Devotion -- Galaxy Quest. nestra recced this and I actually had to have her explain the premise to me, which is a somewhat embarrassing admission, but once I got it, I thought this was clever and great. (And, of course, I could in turn explain it to anyone who asks, but somehow I don't think that'll be necessary.)

The "Sex Poodles" is by doyle_sb4 and is, I think, in the BBF archive. :}

So I wasn't crazy! Thanks. But I thought all these stories were written fresh for the seasonal challenge...?

Neither crazy nor crackaddled: Yay!

I'm not sure how you're searching the archive, but you might be pulling up stories from last year's challenge?

Huh--interesting. I'd thought I'd just done a totally general quicksearch that would give me current listings, but I do see that there are some links to 2003 stories. Now I am confused. But oh well--I can hope that there are a few people who hadn't read the story (like, um, me) who will enjoy. *g*

The search engine's been giving me results from last year's challenge, too. I remember really digging that BtVS story last year -- it's one of the ones I saved to my hard drive...

Maybe the author posted it to BBF after the yuletide reveal?

Can I rec a fic to you? I don't know if you are familiar with the show Once a Thief (Nick Lea--Krycek--was one of the leads) but if you are you will love Happily Ever After (to read comments go here). It's brilliant.

I *do* know it--mostly from vids, as a "friend of a friend's" kind of fandom, but hey--I will go read it! :>) Thank you!

I just finished reading this--great rec!

"Nothing!" Mac looked up and casually examined the ceiling. "It's just. Now I have to tell you something else about the cookies."

Vic raised his eyebrows and waited.

Mac smiled brightly. "I didn't actually eat any."


*glee*

"I never thought I'd say this to another man, Vic, but I'm really, really glad you ate the poisoned sex cookies."

I actually made a dog-like barking sound as I laughed. Ahem.

Ah, I'm so glad you liked it.:-) I haven't even seen all episodes, myself, yet, but I thought this fic was perfect in terms of character voices, bizarreness (humour, plot, 'messed up' chronology of events) and slashiness. OaT is probably the slashiest show I have ever seen but it's so difficult to find good Mac/Vic fic.

I just wish I knew more about the other Yuletide fandoms. There seem to be many good stories.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked this one.:-)
